Law of the Texan is another of the above-average Buck Jones westerns produced by Coronet Films for Columbia release. Jones pulls the old ploy of posing as an outlaw to insinuate himself into Spencer's (Kenneth Harlan) criminal gang. This strategy leads Jones to the crooks' south-of-the-border hideout, where he mixes it up with the local desperadoes. The film's fight scenes are among Jones' best, with a maximum of fisticuffs and a minimum of bloodshed. Cast as the heroine is bright-eyed Dorothy Fay, later the wife of cowboy star Tex Ritter.
